(Ṣ, * Ḳ, * TḲ.) [عَزَّ وَجَلَّ, referring to the name of God expressed or understood, is a phrase of frequent occurrence, meaning, To Him, or to Whom, belong might and majesty, or glory and greatness.]
You also say, عَزَزْتُ عَلَيْهِ, (Ṣ, O, Ḳ,) aor. عَزِ3َ; (O, Ḳ,) meaning, كَرُمْتُ عَلَيْهِ, (Ṣ, O, Ḳ, *) i. e., I exceeded him in nobleness, or generosity. (TḲ.)
And عَزَّ, [aor. عَزِ3َ, inf. n. عِزٌّ and عِزَّةٌ and app. عَزَازَةٌ also,] He magnified, or exalted, himself: (TA:) (assumed tropical:) he was disdainful, scornful, or indignant, in a blamable manner. (TA, in explanation of عِزَّةٌ; q. v. infrà.) [See also 5.]
He resisted, or withstood: (TA, in explanation of عِزٌّ:) he was indomitable, invincible; not to be overcome. (B and TA, in explanation of عِزَّةٌ, q. v. infrà.) And عَزَّ الشَّىْءُ, aor. عَزِ3َ, The thing was, or became, [difficult, or hard; as also اِعْتَزَّ, (occurring in the TA, coupled with تَعَسَّرَ, in an explanation of مَنُعَ, in art. منع,) and تعزّز: and] impossible, insuperable, or unattainable: or so, as Es-Sarakustee says, تعزّز. (Mṣb.)
And عَزَّ, (Ṣ, O, Ḳ,) aor. عَزِ3َ, inf. n. عِزٌّ and عِزَّةٌ and عَزَازَةٌ, (Ṣ, O,) It (a thing, Ṣ, O, Ḳ, meaning anything, TA) was, or became, rare, scarce, hardly to be found. (Ṣ, O, Ḳ.)
[And hence, He, or it, was, or became, dear, highly esteemed, or greatly valued..]
عَزَّ عَلَىَّ أَنْ تَفْعَلَ كَذَا, (Ṣ, Mgh, O, Mṣb, Ḳ,) aor. عَزِ3َ (Mgh, O, Mṣb, Ḳ) and عَزَ3َ (Fr, Mgh, O, Ḳ,) [the second pers. of the pret. being عَزَزْتَ and عَزِزْتَ,] the latter aor. the more chaste, (O,) means Thy doing so distressed, or hath distressed, or afflicted, me; or, emphatically, distresses, or afflicts, me; syn. اِشْتَدَّ, (Ṣ, Mgh, O, Mṣb, Ḳ, TA,) and حَقَّ, (Ṣ, O, Ḳ, TA,) and شَقَّ: (TA:) a phrase [often, but not always,] alluding to a loathing of the action, or indignation thereat. (Mṣb.) In like manner also you say, عَزَّ عَلَىَّ كَذَا Such a thing distressed, or afflicted, me. (Ṣ.) And عَزَّ عَلَىَّ أَنْ أَسُوْءَكَ It distressed, or afflicted, me to displease thee. (A.) And عَزَّ مَا أَنَّكَ ذَاهِبٌ, like حَقَّ أَنَّكَ ذَاهِبٌ [or حَقَّ مَا انّك ذاهب, meaning It is distressing that thou art going away]. (TA.) And one says to a man, Dost thou love me? and he replies, لَعَزَّ مَا, i. e., لَشَدَّ مَا, (A, O, Ḳ,) and لَحَقَّ مَا, (A, TA,) meaning It distresses me, what thou sayest; or it has distressed me. (TḲ.) You say also, بِمَا أَصَابَكَ أُعْزِزْتُ I was, or am, distressed by what befell, or hath befallen, thee. (Ṣ, O, Ḳ.) And عَلَىَّ بِمَا أُصِبْتَ بِهِ أَعْزِزْ That by which thou hast been afflicted distresses me: (Ṣ, O:) [or how doth it distress me!] so in a trad. of 'Alee; when he beheld Talhah slain, he said, عَلَىَّ أَعْزِزْ أَبَا مُحَمَّدٍ أَنْ أَرَاكَ مُجَدَّلًا تَحْتَ نُجُومِ السَّمَآءِ [It distresses me, or how doth it distress me! O Aboo-Moḥammad, that I see thee prostrated upon the ground beneath the stars of heaven]. (TA.) [A similar ex. is given in the A; without بِ prefixed to أَنْ.]
عَزَّ also signifies He was, or became, weak: thus having two contr. meanings. (Mṣb.)
عَزَّهُ, aor. عَزُ3َ, (Ṣ, A, O, Ḳ,) inf. n. عَزٌّ, (Ṣ, O, TA,) He overcame him, or conquered him: (Ṣ, A, O:) he overcame him in argumentative contest; (Ḳ, * TA;) as also عَزْعَزَهُ, (Ḳ,) inf. n. عَزْعَزَةٌ; (TA;) and so عَزَّهُ فِى الخِطَابِ: (Jel in xxxviii. 22, and TA:) or this last signifies he became stronger than he therein; (TA;) or he strove with him to overcome therein; as also فِيهِ عازّهُ, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) inf. n. مُعَازَّةٌ: (O, TA:) in the Ḳur xxxviii. 22, some read عَزَّنِى; and others, عَازَّنِى: and you say, فَعَزَزْتُهُ عَازَّنِى, meaning, he strove with me to overcome, and I overcame him: and مُعَازَّةٌ signifies the contending together in argument: (TA:) you say also of a horse, فَارِسَهُ اعتزّ [he overcame his rider, or gained the mastery over him]. (Ṣ and Ḳ in art. جمع.) It is said in a prov., (Ṣ,) مَنْ عَزَّ بَزَّ He who overcomes takes the spoil. (Ṣ, A, O, Ḳ.) And in another prov., (Ṣ,) إِذَا عَزَّ أَخُوكَ فَهُنْ (Th, Ṣ, O, Ḳ) When thy brother overcomes thee, and thou art not equal to him (لَمْ تُقَاومْهُ) be thou gentle to him: (Az, O, Ḳ, TA:) or when thy brother magnifies and exalts himself against thee, abase thyself: (Th, TA:) or, accord. to Aboo-Is-hák, what Th says is a mistake; the right reading being فَهِنْ, with kesr, and the meaning, when thy brother is hard, or severe, to thee, treat thou him with gentleness, or blandishment; not فَهُنْ, with damm, which is from الهَوَانُ: but ISd approves and justifies the reading given by Th. (TA.) [See also 10.]
عَزَّهُ. aor. عَزُ3َ, inf. n. عَزٌّ, also signifies the same as عَزَّزَهُ (Mṣb, TA *) and أَعَزَّهُ, (TA,) in a sense pointed out below: see 2, in two places. (Mṣb, TA.)

(A.)

See also مَعْزُوزَةٌ.


[fem. of عَزِيزٌ, q. v.
Also] An eagle: so in a verse of Aboo-Kebeer El-Hudhalee: but as some relate that verse, it is عَزِيبَة, (Ḳ, TA,) i. e. “ that has gone far from the seeker: ” (TA:) or غَرِيبَة, (TA, and thus in the CK,) expl. by Skr as meaning “ black ” (سَوْدَآء) [as though for غِرْبِيبَة, fem. of غِربِيب: but the word سَوْدَآء immediately follows it in that verse].

[fem. of أَعَزُّ, q. v., last sentence:
and] i. q. مَعْزُوزَةٌ, q. v. (TA.)


[More, and most, mighty, potent, powerful, or strong: &c.: see عَزِيزٌ, of which it is the comparative and superlative form: and see an ex. voce اَلْ (p. 75): and another in a verse cited in art. صب, conj. 6]. It is related in a trad. of Aboo-Bekr, that he said to 'Áïsheh, إِنَّ أَحَبَّ النَّاسِ إِلَىَّ غَنًى أَنْتِ وَأَعَزُّهُمْ فَقْرًا أَنْتِ, meaning. Verily the one of mankind whose richness is most pleasing to me art thou; and the one of them whose poverty is most distressing to me art thou. (Mgh.) The fem. of أَعَزُّ [as a noun of excess] is عُزَّى: (Ṣ, ISd, O, Ḳ;) like as فُضْلَى is of أَفْضَلُ. (ISd.) [But see what follows.]
العُزَّى was the name of A certain idol, (Ṣ, O, Ḳ,) belonging to Kureysh and Benoo-Kináneh: (Ṣ, O, TA:) or a certain gum-acacia-tree, (سَمُرَةٌ,) which the tribe of Ghatafán (Ṣ, O, Ḳ) the son of Saạd the son of Keys-'Eilán (TA) used to worship; (Ṣ, O, Ḳ;) the first who took it as an object of worship was Dhálim the son of As' ad; above Dhát- 'Irk, nine miles towards El-Bustán, (O, Ḳ, TA,) at [the valley called] En-Nakhleh Esh-Shámeeyeh, (O, TA,) near Mekkeh; or, as some say, at Et- Táïf: (TA:) he, (Ḳ,) Dhálim, (O,) or they, (Ṣ,) built over it a house, (Ṣ, O, Ḳ) and named it بُسّ, (O, Ḳ,) accord. to Ibn-El-Kelbee; or, accord. to others, بُسَّآء; (TA;) and they appointed to it ministers, (Ṣ, TA,) like those of the Kaabeh; (TA;) and they used to hear in it a voice: (O, Ḳ, TA:) but Moḥammad sent to it Khálid Ibn-El-Weleed, (Ṣ, O, Ḳ,) in the year of the conquest [of Mekkeh], (O, TA,) and he demolished the house, (Ṣ, Ḳ,) and slew the [chief] minister, (TA,) and burned the gum-acacia-tree: (Ṣ, O, Ḳ:) or, as is related on the authority of I'Ab, a certain she-devil, who used to come to three gumacacia-trees (سَمُرَات) in Batn-Nakhleh, against whom Moḥammad, when he conquered Mekkeh, sent Khálid Ibn-El-Weleed; and he cut down the trees, and slew her and her minister. (TA.) A poet says,
* أَمَا وَدِمَآءٍ مَائِرَاتٍ تَخَالُهَا *
* عَلَى قُنَّةِ العُزَّى وَبِالنَّسْرِ عَنْدَمَا *
[Verily, or now surely, by bloods flowing, and running hither and thither, which thou wouldst think to be dragon's-blood, upon the mountain-top of El-' Ozzà, and by En-Nesr]. (Ṣ.) ISd says, I hold العُزَّى to be fem. of الأَعَزُّ; and if so, the ال in the former is not redundant, but is like the ال in الحَارِثُ and العَبَّاسُ: but properly it should be redundant, because we have not heard العُزَّى as an epithet [of excess] like as we have heard الصُّغْرَى and الكُبْرَى. (L, TA.)
عُزَّى is [however] used in the sense of عَزِيزَةٌ: (Ḳ, TA:) and أَعَزُّ [fem. عَزَّآءُ] is also syn. with عَزِيزٌ, which see in four places. (Ṣ, Ḳ.)


, as a name of God, He who giveth عِزّ [or might, &c.] to whomsoever He will, of his servants. (TA.)


[accord. to analogy signifies A cause, or means, of عِزّ i. e. might, &c.]: see ظَفَارِ.

إِنَّكُمْ مُعَزَّزٌ بِكُمْ

Verily ye are treated with hardness, severity, or rigour; not with indulgence. (Ṣ, O, TA.) From a trad. of Ibn-ʼOmar. (O, TA.)

فُلَانٌ مِعْزَازٌ المَرَضِ

Such a one is in a severe state of disease. (Ṣ, O, Ḳ.)


, applied to land, or ground, (أَرْضٌ, Ṣ, O,) Hard, or firm; syn. شَدِيدَةٌ. (Ṣ, O, Ḳ.)
And, so applied, Rained upon (O, Ḳ, TA) by rain such as is termed عِزّ, and rendered compact, or coherent, and hard; as also عَزَازَةٌ and عَزَّآءُ. (TA.)

فَرَسٌ مُعْتَزَّةٌ A mare having thick and strong flesh. (TA.)
